Holiday Programmes

School Holiday Fun,

Piha Surf Academy provide a comprehensive and fun school holiday programmes for children aged 7 and up under 7s can email in to request. Our programme has been developed for children wanting to learn to surf, meet new friends and to develop a relationship with water. Children within our holiday programme will learn about beach and water safety, develop confidence in the water and learn to surf. Children in our holiday will have adequate supervision with qualified and specially trained instructors that approach coaching in a fun and engaging way. Although children in our beginner holiday programmes will surf at a safe depth according to their height, they still need to be able to swim confidently.


“A huge thank you to Felipe Rebolledo and Chelsea Withers and your team from Piha Surf Academy for the most amazing 3 days my son had learning to surf on your school holiday programme. It can be a scary thing leaving your child in the hands of others in the rugged Piha surf and yet your professional and fun approach with the children quickly put my mind at ease and my son Zinzan is now hooked on surfing and we’re planning on buying a board, thank you!! Fully recommend to others, professional, safe, fun and fantastic affordable prices” – NICOLA
